Correction for not coming on Recall

I've been wondering about this.....what do you do if the dog chooses not to come?....I finally found my favorite training book, "Mother Knows Best", and this is her advice. Go to your dog, snap on his lead, sayCOME, COME, COME, and walk back t precisely where you were when you first called. Practice recall for at least five minutes (for a young puppy), or until they're REALLY sick of practicing.
I constantly make analogies to kids, and this trick always works like a charm for me :lol: Basically, if you don't do what I say, I'll be fair, but you're gonna really, really wish you'd listened the first time. :lol:

We taught Torco by using a reward - treats. We'd practice around the house and we'd say, "Torco COME!" and he'd literally RUN to us from anywhere in the house. Now that he knows the recall, we only use treats a fraction of the time, but he still comings running to us when we call him, even outside our house.
